Edisto Beach: Independence Day

We enjoy Edisto Beach on July 4th not for the fireworks display, which of course does not exist, but for the time we get to spend together as a family at this special place.

We have this time thanks to the men and women who serve or have served this great nation.

So while we won’t shoot fireworks, we will gather on the beach for the third year in a row to watch something more moving…a shoreline flyover by United States Air Force.

The 79th Fighter Squadron “The Flying Tigers” of the 20th Fighter Wing will conduct the flyover with F-16s, and cover every beach on the South Carolina coast.

The Tigers are expected to reach Edisto Beach at 1:25 pm on July 4th.

The Tigers were the last out of Iraq, providing cover for troops on their way to Kuwait.

Stick around after the Tigers pass. Vintage military aircraft will soon follow with military veterans aboard.

Come on out to the beach ahead of time in patriotic colors with flag and camera in hand.

Take pictures and upload them to the site or to our facebook page here to share with those who can’t be with us.
